Construction has been completed on the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador’s first public-private partnership project – the 145-bed long-term care home in Corner Brook.
On February 14, Western Health began operational control of the building and the 30-year service contract with Plenary’s Corner Brook Care Partnership began. Over the coming weeks, Western Health staff will move in beds and equipment and will train staff, before welcoming residents this spring.
The home includes 120 long-term care beds, as well as 15 palliative care beds and 10 rehabilitative care beds. It will be staffed by more than 150 new positions. In addition, more than 60 full-time equivalent staff will be transferring from Western Memorial Regional Hospital. Employees will provide nursing care, housekeeping duties, and dietary services.
A new name for the home will also be announced this spring. Views from inside and outside the home can be viewed online on the government’s YouTube page.
The contract with Corner Brook Care Partnership is worth approximately $120 million (net present value) and covers a 30-year period.
Plenary is also building a new 164-bed hospital in Corner Brook, expected to be completed in 2023. Its design can also be viewed online on the government’s YouTube page.
